Manila Jiva

I’m pesco-vegetarian, but I do try to stick to a vegan diet most days of the week.  It’s easy enough when eating at home, but not so easy when going to restaurants.  Since Nancy is an expert on this, I thought I’d ask her, “What are your favorite vegan restaurant dishes in Manila?”  She shares her favorites below, and I can’t wait to try them all.

Thanks, Nancy!
